sweetish, rich, dense taste is apparent from the first brewing, in the second brew the fine gushu bitterness appears, in the cup you can feel nice flowerish aromas, pu-erh teas from Manzhuan has the ability even during his first year of aging to transform to sweet, honey like tones, that can be noticed in the tea even now, be careful with the dosage, number of grams used, this is a really powerful tea that with high dosage could be a very bitter like brew, these cakes unlike the others spring 2013 are pressed less tight

this spring hand-pressing of pu-erh cakes was done in a very skilled manufacture in Yiwu, is more tight than previous years, there is more work for me when taking apart the tea leaves for samples, but for long term storage the tight pressing will allow keep longer the aromas, the tea leaves won't dry that much, during this tighter pressing the man standing on the stone press needs twice as much time to have the leaves trample down

The tea was part of Sheng 2013 Blind Tasting Set

Sample is not compact. This is a tea with a very long individual leaves. In this case, it is clear that it is ManZhuan. Tea leaves are filling almost the whole tea pot, but it is still the same 7 grams of tea. Scent of a young pu-erh is great – sweet and floral. The first infusion has a soft flavor, I guess too short steeping. I am steeping much longer. The tea was already over steeped according to the color, but the taste is still not bold. Slight sweetness, mild bitterness, dry tongue in aftertaste, but nothing distinctive. Such a "flat" taste, but the smell of leaves is splendid in a teapot.

Quotes - Pu-erh

„Depending on the desired product and speed, from quickest and tightest to slowest and loosest, pressing can be done by a large heavy stone, carved into the shape of a short cylinder with a handle, simply weighs a bag of tea down onto a wooden board. The tension from the bag and the weight of the stone together give the tea its rounded and sometimes non-uniformed edge. Due to the manual labor involved, this method of pressing is often referred to as: "hand" or "stone-pressing", and is how many artisanal pu'er bǐng are still manufactured.“

„ping wen; 平稳. Smooth, steady, even. Used to refer to the taste of tea. Puer should be smooth and steady without any sudden changes in the flavour as steepings progress. A sudden change or loss of flavour is an indicator of poor quality. Good Puer can be steeped 20 to 30 times and maintain it's flavour. “
